    Please excuse my ignorance but I just received my OMD yesterday and I'm having some problems. How do I get what I want to take a photo of to display in the monitor? I've looked everywhere in the instruction manual and can't find it.
    Thank you very much for your patience and help. I'm there will be mure questions to follow.

    On the back of the camera, above the LCD on the right, is a tiny button with a blue "<", depress that button.

    When I push that button it will only show me the pictures I've already taken. I want to see what I'm taking before I take the picture.

    I think he maybe referring to the viewfinder/LCD toggle button.

    On the right side of the viewfinder there is a button that will toggle live view between the LCD and viewfinder.

    I can't tell you better place to hide a button.
